Every sport has its heroes and villains, and the geneses for those reputations are as varied as the characters who play the part. At some point, the roles become inseparable from the person performing, and we forget why we loved or loathed the guy in the first place.

So here was Patrick Reed, barrel-chested and more, lumbering up the 18th fairway Sunday evening at Augusta National Golf Club. Through a typically enthralling final round at the Masters, Reed had heard cheers for his introduction dwarfed by those of his playing partner, Rory McIlroy. He had embraced the explosions from around the golf course, roars for Jordan Spieth and Rickie Fowler and Jon Rahm.

“That’s another thing,” Reed said, “that played into my hand.”
